The RIDE Festival may only be in its 9th year, but it has already created a reputation for itself as a heavy-hitter on the Colorado music scene as a go-to for big names, rootsy rock, and strong lineups. With past acts such as Pearl Jam, Beck, Sheryl Crow, The Lumineers, Cage The Elephant, Ben Harper, and Cake, you're sure to see a band with a reputation for being unforgettable at a once-in-a-lifetime venue.
In addition to the outdoor shows during the day, RIDE also offers the NightRIDE lineup, featuring up-and-coming artists at more intimate venues around town in the evenings. This can be a great way to see an artist up-close and personal.
The festival offers a limited number of campsites but with the often harsh and unpredictable Colorado weather, we find it much more comfortable and fun to stay in a rental. Check out some of our favorites here.
